He Ate My Cell Phone

September 21, 2008

One of the things I had most appreciated about the Chase-puppy is that he wasn’t a big chewer.  Well, that has all changed as of one minute ago.  I was upstairs checking out all my favorite blogs and Carolyn’s website updates.  I heard Chase chewing on something downstairs — made the assumption it was one of the gazillion toys the dogs have accumulated so did not rush downstairs to check.  That was a bad decision.

He chewed my Palm Treo to shreds along with the leather case.  He destroyed the antenna, broke off the battery cover.  I caught him before he got to the Smart Card with the Garmin info on it.  I believe I have replacement insurance to cover damage — and boy is it damaged!

So I’m going to call Verizon to let them know that my dog ate my homework, my contacts, my calendar, my text messages, and see if they will replace it.  Meanwhile, Chase is licking my toes — like that’s going to make up for this.

    ooooh busted, buddy! You’ll have to do a lot more than lick some toes to make up for it! I hope Verizon is cooperative for you – I’ve been fortunate with my experiences with them… 🙂 You wanted a new phone anyway, right?? 😉 *sigh* puppies! LOL

    Verizon has been very nice — so far, but I don’t have the new phone in my hot little hand. The decedant did not have a camera (not allowed in the courthouse when I got it), and I’d been thinking that since the rule was changed, I’d like a new Treo with a camera. I don’t think that’s what they’ll send, however. Sigh!

    The only *two* things Traum has destroyed (other than countless crotches from panties), was a $75 headset, and my favorite pair of sandles, an irreplaceable pair of leather Nike ones a friend that worked there gave me (I still have them, hoping to someday have them repaired since he only ate the leather, didn’t damage the sole 😉

    Maybe I should put insurance on my phone, before I say anything more? LMAO

    Oh man, can I totally sympathize with you! Except the mouth that ate mine was a collie and she even liked the taste of the battery.

    Hope the insurance comes through.
